Reiki is an ancient healing technique that originated in Japan. The word roughly translates into “spiritually guided life force energy.” The treatment is based on the concept that everyone has a life force energy that flows within. When that energy is at higher levels, you feel happy, healthy, and fulfilled. When it is low, energy dips, and your risk of becoming ill rises.
Reiki seeks to transform energy from practitioner to patient using gentle, intentional touch. Sometimes referred to as “laying on hands,” reiki sessions share some elements with massage therapy.
Removing your clothing during reiki sessions is unnecessary, but it’s helpful to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. You’ll relax on the treatment table as your practitioner touches your body lightly. Depending on what you hope to achieve from your visit, they might touch your shoulders, stomach, feet, or head.
Each touch is usually sustained for 3-10 minutes. The pressure is very light, so there is no need to feel tense or anxious. Many people find sessions incredibly relaxing, and some even begin to fall asleep. Others enter a deep meditative state during treatments.
It’s important to enter reiki sessions with an open mind. Your experience at one visit might be completely different from another session. One of the most interesting things about reiki is that the patient completely guides the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient. Your body only draws the energy it needs, no more and no less.
